You can probably get signal, but it might fail under anything but perfect conditions.

Is there some reason you don't want to use the bigger dish made for Alaska?

Here are some links that will give you all the answers.

This link is the Beam Footprint Library (plain link, not Google Earth)


You will need to have the Google Earth application (it's free) to display the following links:

This is the beam footprint for sat D14@99W

This is the beam footprint for sat D15 @103W

On the maps, the contour lines are noted with the signal level.
You are on the edge of the pattern, but you should have a marginal signal to work with.

That’s like saying that Shaw & Bell aren’t “allowed” in the U.S. and yet there are many especially in ND where I am.

Directv is not allowed in Canada!. Sorry, if you want Directv them move to the US when Covid is over up there.
Technically correct, but no one cares.

Just don't have the equipment available I guess .

Ya, they seem to be hard to come by these days. You'll have to pay a premium for one.

SolidSignal is out: DIRECTV 1.2m Satellite Dish Reflector for Alaska and Hawaii (DTVAH12DISH)

Here is the LNBF for it though: DIRECTV 99° 101° 103° DTVAHKAKUKIT LBN Kit for DTVAH12DISH 1.2M Antenna System 601430111870 | eBay

All these companies care about is getting paid!!!

The contracts Directv has with the networks require them to make at least some attempt to prevent usage outside of the US, because those networks have content that's only licensed for the US.

They just have to a make a good faith effort - they don't have to go crazy trying to crack down on all Canada/Mexico usage but they can't knowingly permit it or they'd open themselves up to major lawsuits.
